I wonder if WWE 2K18 will also have amiibo support then? I'm thinking it will just be bonus VC that you can do daily, like materials/food with non-Zelda amiibos in BoTW.

Absolutely disgusting that Bowser is abandoning the Koopas and joining the Mushroom Kingdom just so he can finally get a W. Have some pride in yourself, man.

Sound effects. 1-Up sound whenever you score. Waluigi "NGHAAAA" whenever you block.

8bit nintendo jingles as the stadium music cues

edit: amiibo voltron - tap amiibo of character voiced by Charles Martinet and the announcer becomes him in the style of that character! :D (way too elaborate but I love the dumb idea)

I want you to be able to create your own Nintendo team. If you have 5 Mario Amiibo you can scan them in and create a Nintendo roster of players.

I might actually consider picking this up from the bargain bin if you could play as Nintendo characters

I'll even take Waluigi as a referee making bogus calls and telling players to suck it while he throws them out of the game.

I bet it's something stupid like "save your favourite player on an amiibo and take that to a friend to play.

Is there a story mode in this game? That would fit. Take your character anywhere.

It's probably going to be character themed jerseys or shoes or something.

It would be awesome if they actually put playable characters in the game though.

realistically, they're not creating animated characters for every even just Mario-line amiibo. it's fun to joke about but it's not happening. you'll get clothes and stuff.

Yeah, this instantly made me think of NBA Street V3 on GameCube.

Seems that 2K is actually putting some effort into this version of the game so that's cool.
you're not getting characters.

2k sees no money from amiibo, why would they waste so many resources on player characters. it's completely unrealistic.

I'm not expecting full characters. It simply reminds me of NBA Street V3 due to this seemingly being a cross over of Nintendo and NBA in some way. I'm expecting jerseys and/or shoes.

Honestly - not a sports game fan, but have 99% of all amiibo released so far - and this would incentivise me to buy if the benefits were cool

How cool would it be if you could put a can of black spray paint on your Switch and Lebron would get a fresh tape in game??
